    Shame it didn't have the 1080. Will still buy for the free backpack though.

    1070 q max card right?
    Did they fix the overheating issues? It seems a lot of people need to undervolt cpu…

    I have this but the 4k version. I dont know i could reccommend it. It's pretty flimsy, I still get BSODs, there a re numerous small issues, and the keyboard is on the fritz already. There aren't a lot of laptops with this power at this price though. If you want raw power, get something a bit bigger - the big battery is a joke if you're gaming or doing real work. You get about 1.5hours. At the time dell had nothing with a 1060+ and an 8750h. That's where id look first now.

      I heard about keyboard issues on the first gen laptops, but not so much for second gen. I guess they didn't fix it?

      The Aero 15's battery is also widely praised for having the biggest capacity by far compared to other laptops in this class (Blade 15 2018, MSI GS65, Asus Zephyrus): https://www.notebookcheck.net/Gigabyte-Aero-15X-v8-i7-8750H-... (TLDR 8+ hrs of Wifi/H.264). Of course, if you're actually gaming then it lasts about 2 hours, but no laptops playing games are gonna last long on battery.

        I have an Aero 14 so not exactly the same, but its battery life is great if one is prepared to do some tweaking, such as adjusting various Windows settings and using ThrottleStop. By doing those, my battery life lasts over 7 hours with browsing and some typical office work (Word and Excel),though that figure drops depending on more intensive applications and I wouldn’t try to run games on battery.

    I would consider it if I didn't have P35x V6. I also got free backpack and a gigabyte mouse.

    having spent 5wks of mucking about with gigabyte sending rma and trying to get a refund i can't recommend this laptop at all. if you can be bothered reading:…
    -touchpad died after laptop updated to 1803 (wasted a few hours of updating)
    -reset to default. updates again to 1803 but this time touchpad still works
    -backup laptop but it bluescreens. attempt recovery from backup but bluescreens again and ssd corrupted. factory reset image lost.
    -ssd missing from bios. can't reinstall win10.
    -wait a few days to email store and gigabyte back and forth for rma collection
    -2wks b4 getting laptop back from gigabyte saying there's nothing wrong
    -bluescreens and corrupted/missing ssd within 5min of getting the laptop back
    -another week sending laptop back
    -another 1.5wks b4 refund back in account
    -5wks wasted and laptop was unusuable and hours and hours wasted trying to figure out what was wrong. in addition to that mine had quite a bit of backlight bleed which imo is unacceptable
    -store i bought laptop from (not this seller) says they had another 4 of them on rma as well with gigabyte

      ymmv, i have the 1060 version of this and haven't had any issues with it.

      For me this laptop was a great balance between, battery, performance and weight. Draw back is definitely the price.

        The problem seems to be M$crosoft with the unexpected and forced updates that are like a new OS that breaks and corrupts this and that.
        I experienced the same problems on my Asus laptop with Windows 10 Home, you have no control on your asset so M$crosoft pretends to do what ever they want to and brick your computer which was working fine before the forced update.
        My solution was to format and install pirate Windows 10 professional that allows more control on updates, problem fixed.
